EDAD 6804 - Enhancing Teacher Capacity and Commitment♦


(3 sem. cr.) One of the central roles of school leaders is to build human resources, from recruitment, through induction, to continuing professional development. Educators in this course explore the role of developing and sustaining human resources as well as methods for dealing with continuing ineffectiveness among members of school staff. They engage in a variety of practical exercises, such as the development of a strategy to build, monitor, and support collaborative teams as a vehicle for professional learning communities that foster high levels of learning. Educators also consider the importance of professional development, analyze a case study of an existing professional development plan, and create a proposal for change to improve outcomes.
